Also, if your child gets accommodations on state tests, it’s important for her to use them regularly in class.
This helps her get familiar with the accommodations.
By using an audiobook, she can learn history without her reading issues getting in the way. Accommodations don’t change what your child is expected to know or learn. Your child may use an audiobook in American history, but she’s still expected to learn about events like the Civil War.
Fortunately, there are changes in the classroom—called accommodations—that can remove these barriers.
To exercise this right, you must ask the school to evaluate your child.
The evaluation can lead to an IEP or a 504 plan for your child.
The bigger challenge is choosing the right accommodations and keeping track of which ones are most helpful.
If an accommodation is in place, but your child isn’t using it, find out why.
